Change Weblink in Other App

3 posts in this topic

There is a custom app that has a "weblink" button, so when clicked, a browser will be launched and a website (e.g. something.com) will be opened in the browser.

I would like to create a tool, so when this tool is running & the "weblink" button from the other app is clicked, a different address (e.g. something.com/about_us.html instead of something.com) will be opened.

Is it possible to create such tool using AutoIt?

I don't have access to the custom app source codes, otherwise I could have just changed the weblink in the custom app directly.

Thanks fo your help!

Hide the weblink button with ControlHide, then replace it with your own.

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

Run("Notepad")
WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad")
$hWnd = WinGetHandle("Untitled - Notepad")
ControlHide($hWnd,"","Edit1")

$hWndChild = GUICreate("",100,20,10,10,$WS_CHILD,-1,$hWnd)
$Button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button",0,0,100,20)
GUISetState()

While 1
    
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    
    If $msg = $Button Then
        msgbox(0,"","I stole notepads edit box and replaced it with my button")
        ExitLoop
    EndIf
    Sleep(100)
WEnd
